How to get rid of dotted focus rectangle around Icons

I am running Windows 7 on my computer and I have a request from me to all. I am looking for a way to remove any dotted line, focus rectangle from the system but according to my choice. The problem is that I am using a third party application for modelling and photo editing and they seem to be appearing there. So, I need some information on how to remove all these focus rectangle from me system. If there is any third party tool then please let me know about it asap. Thanks

There is a Focus Rectangle Remover.zip file that you can search from google and download it on your computer. With the help of this small dll file you can remove the Focus Rectangle quite easily. First download it and then put the RemoveFocusRect dll file in your system32 directory. After that click Start and then in Search type regsvr32 RemoveFocusRect.dll and press ok. Now, whenever you start a program then it will not have focus rectangles on your system.
